Yesterday I was lucky enough to visit a weaver-wannabe and help her set up her loom. I warned her that I'm not all that good at this stuff (not surprisingly--I have a handy husband I rely on for spatial and mechanical stuff).
Our job was to put together her cherry Norwood jack loom. It was so easy to put together I felt a little guilty. It's a beautiful loom, and so well-constructed.
We talked a little about where the loom came from, about warping, and about what her first project would be. And I was on my way in under an hour.
I'll go back with some warp soon, and we'll give warping a try. Fortunately, it has a sectional beam, or I'd have to call in a real expert.
